I’m sick of snow. I’m tired of hats, coats, and mittens. I don’t want to see my breath outside any longer. I am ready for SPRING! I think the arrival of spring is the season I anticipate most throughout the year. The smell of a rain storm is one of my favorites. I love planting my garden. Spring flowers are by far the most stunning. Eeek. I get excited just thinking about it. With the anticipation of some of my favorite things comes an uncharacteristic urge to decorate. I often can’t get myself to deck my house out with seasonal decor. But there is something about the arrival of spring that just gets my seasonal decorating juices going.
Today, I’m joining a group of 18 other bloggers who love bringing fresh colors and ideas into their homes for spring as well. Carrie from Lovely Etc. (who has some great tips for decorating on a budget!) is hosting this spring home tour. At the end of the post, you’ll find links to all the other posts with tons of spring decor inspiration.
I found this woven plate charger at the thrift store a couple weeks ago and envisioned a wreath as soon as I saw it. I’ll be sharing the full tutorial soon! For now, come on in the front door. Welcome!
My mantel is a collection of items I’ve found at thrift stores, estate sales, and flea markets, along with a couple of items I made.
Green makes me happy, and authentic vintage green makes me really happy. Quite clearly, I love these vintage windows.
I’m not much of a pink fan normally, but I decided to bring it in this year with the green.
In our middle “hallway”, I brought in spring with some greenery on the letterboard, and little bud vases for the girls.
I made over this entire home office space (including a full desk with floating shelves on the opposite wall) for $100. You can see the full budget friendly home office reveal here.
I brought more vintage touches into my dining room with a yellow tablecloth I found at an estate sale and some milk glass pieces.
I kept it really simple by adding some greenery and one little nest. I found those stone eggs at an estate sale a couple years ago and just love them for this time of year.
My centerpieces can never be too elaborate or big, primarily because I have six little hands always reaching to try to touch everything, but also because I want to be able to see everyone’s faces at dinner!
Thanks so much for taking a look around. Be sure to check out these other creative ideas on how to bring spring into your home as well!
Like what you see? I’d love for you to follow along!
